"Too many employers and their recruiters are unaware that addressing a disability is often only a matter of mechanics. There's a too-common assumption that being disabled means being unable. That robs an employer of the opportunity to consider people with disabilities as intelligent, capable, and often innovative people who just happen to have some faculty in disrepair."---Katy Jo Meyer, technical recruiter, Microsoft Corporation"We need a constructive dialogue between job seekers with disabilities and employers. Both are passing each other by---sometimes missing each other by miles. This book is intended to assist all employers and all job seekers to find one another. Not connecting is a loss for us all."---John D. Kemp, Executive Director, U.S. Business Leadership Network"Perfectly Able is full of insight and practical help for both job applicants and employers [that] is utterly compelling and convincing....Every employer in the world should have a copy on his or her desk."---Robert W.

Companies that avoid hiring disabled workers miss a golden opportunity to improve their workplace. Often, disabled employees prove to be tough-minded problem solvers who have learned resiliency. Appreciative of the chance to work for their employers' trust, employees with disabilities seldom leave their jobs and so help their companies minimize turnover rates. People with disabilities often possess great character and a strong work ethic. In many cases, they have had to strive more than others to achieve their training and education, and so prove to be superior in their chosen fields. This informative, straightforward guide covers all pertinent legal questions about interviewing and hiring disabled people, dispels numerous myths and prejudices, and offers hardheaded practical advice. getAbstract recommends editor Jim Hasse's insights about recruiting and managing this talented but underused labor pool.
